Choroidal thickness in strabismus and amblyopia

The authors examined the effect of exotropia, esotropia, anisometropic amblyopia and hypermetropia on choroidal thickness in a prospective cross section study. The study included 100 patients and 20 controls with a mean age of 8.5±2.9 years; 61 female and 59...

Ametropic amblyopia and stereopsis

This study aimed to evaluate the correlations between ametropic amblyopia (hypermetropic – 110, myopic – 30, and astigmatic – 65) and stereopsis in 205 children – mean age of 5.2 years ±1.8. For near stereopsis, significant results were found for...

Greater accuracy of cycloplegic refraction

The authors conducted this study on 5320 pre-school (four to six-year-old) and 6475 school (seven to ten years) children to compare the results of final glasses prescription based on cycloplegic refraction with atropine to those of non-cycloplegic refraction. For younger...

Choice of cycloplegia regime

The purpose of this randomised control trial (RCT) was primarily to compare the refractive outcome of atropine 0.5% (A) instilled twice daily at home 2.5 days before measurement versus two drops of 1% cyclopentolate (CC) in one eye versus one...

Spot screen versus cycloplegic refraction

This study compared the spherical, cylindrical and spherical equivalent values obtained by the Spot screener before and after induction of cycloplegia with the values of cycloplegic refraction to explore the application value of the Spot screener in refractive error screening...

Refraction planning in cataract: avoid creating an unhappy patient

“It is much more important to know what sort of a patient has a disease than what sort of a disease a patient has.” William Osler The focus of this paper is the prevention of an unhappy patient following cataract...

IO belly transposition surgery

The authors evaluated inferior oblique (IO) muscle belly transposition to correct mild to moderate IO overaction with small primary position hypertropia. They reviewed 10 patients aged 6-35 years (mean 18.6 years). Aetiologies were mild unilateral superior oblique (SO) palsy for...

Early refractive correction promotes esotropia control

This study sought to determine the incidence and characteristics of esotropia in a Northern Ireland population of children <7 years old in a one-year period. The authors report a 2013 cohort in which the area catchment had 29,365 children under...

Comparison of vision screeners

The primary purpose of this study was to calibrate the various paediatric photoscreeners over a range of contact lens induced hyperopic and astigmatic anisometropia using the American Association of Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (AAPOS) criteria for anisometropic or axial astigmatism....

Iranian prevalence of strabismus

There is little prior evidence on prevalence of strabismus in Iran. Thus, this study was undertaken to investigate the prevalence of strabismus types in Azad University students aged 18-25 years in South West Iran. A total of 752 of 826...

Smartphone use in screening

This prospective study aimed to determine the positive predictive value (PPV) of patients referred to a pediatric ophthalmic practice in Alaska. Young children were photoscreened with Gobiquity app on a Nokia model 1020 smartphone; 217 children were referred. Time from...

BT outcomes for accommodative esotropia

The purpose of this study was to study the effect of Botulinum Toxin (BT) in refractive and non-refractive accommodative esotropia unresponsive to glasses and poor compliance with glasses. This was a retrospective study of 114 patients who had BT for...
